Watch: Tame Impala New Video ‘Feels Like We Only Go Backwards’
Written by Marc Zanotti on 12th November, 2012
Tame Impala have released a music video for single Feels Like We Only Go Backwards, and as you probably guessed, it’s a psychedelic blast of colours and shifting shapes that takes you further down the rabbit hole as you become a slave to the hypnotic groove.
The soon-to-be two time J Award winners (prediction noted) have released a masterpiece with their sophomore effort Lonerism. A record that many are hailing as the album of the year, Lonerism saw songwriter and frontman Kevin Parker explore his pop sensibilities, as he has previously explained.
“The kind of melodies and chords on this album are a lot more pop. I think there’s just so much more pop influence on this one,” Parker remarked, “On the last one … they were all really kind of psychedelic rock melodies … with this one it was like the melodies and the actual melodic part of most of the songs is really kind of like R&B; an R&B pop melody over some really kind of like crazy psychedelic production.”
